Cheekwood Estate

& Gardens

Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville is a proud supporter of Cheekwood, one of the finest American Country Place Era estates in the nation. Formerly the family home of Mabel and Leslie Cheek, the extraordinary 1930s estate, with its 30,000-square-foot Mansion and 55 acres of cultivated gardens and expansive vistas, today serves the public as a botanical garden, arboretum, and museum with period rooms and art galleries, showcasing works from its permanent collection as well as traveling exhibitions.

ECON Charities

A&G is also a proud supporter of two Economic Club of Nashville charities:


Light A Spark

Light A Spark partners with local nonprofit organizations to offer fragile families access to shared cultural experiences. This work is vitally important because these shared cultural experiences are proven to counterbalance any adverse childhood experiences, such as abuse, neglect or household dysfunction, which can impact a person’s lifelong health and well-being.


The Family Center

The Family Center is a change agent in the community. Its evidence-based or research-informed programs provide guidance and support as families navigate new strategies for coping with trauma and move forward with greater awareness, confidence, and a renewed hope for resilience!
